ABC is gearing up for Careers in Construction Month in October, a nationwide campaign held annually to increase public awareness of construction careers and inspire the next generation of craft professionals.
NCCER and Build Your Future are asking ABC members to encourage their state governors to proclaim October as Careers in Construction Month.
As of June 2022, Alabama, Florida, Maryland, New Mexico, New York, South Dakota and Virginia have issued official proclamations for this year.
Members can also get involved in the campaign by signing the CICM pledge, spreading the word on social media and participating in the I BUILT THIS! video contest.
By signing the pledge and participating in at least one classroom engagement, whether virtual or in person, you will be entered into a drawing for one of four $5,000 scholarships to be given to the secondary craft training program of your choice.
